I am a huge Oksana Baiul fan, as I assume many are!!! Well I just found out she is starring in a Broadway Musical on ice... I can't wait to see it!!! It's called "Cold As Ice" and opens on May 16th @ Gateway Playhouse in Bellport, Long Island.
Here is a portion from the press release:
[center] "The Gateway Playhouse is icing up the stage to welcome Perfect Ten Olympic Gold Medalist Oksana Baiul. Along with Oksana Baiul, who is no stranger to performing in the spotlight, and Lucinda Ruh, who set the world record for the longest and fastest spinning on ice, this all-star cast will include eminent skaters such as National Competitors Stephanie Rosenthal and Derrick Delmore. Watch as six talented skaters vie for gold, silver, and bronze in their journey to the Olympics.
This creative and revolutionary concept of a half ice / half stage production inside the illustrious Gateway Playhouse has critics raving about the potential for sheer excitement, thrills, and “chills,” and leaving audiences in awe of the never-before-staged production of Cold as Ice!
If you love theatre or you love skating, then don’t miss the world premiere of this once in a lifetime figure skating spectacular!"[/center]
